Viessmann and CHOOOSE convert exercise into climate action

Viessmann and CHOOOSE will plant trees for your athletic accomplishments

Kickstart the new year by joining ViMove! Starting January 4, Viessmann will plant trees to reward your athletic accomplishments in partnership with CHOOOSE.

Viessmann, one of the leading international manufacturers of sustainable and environmentally-friendly climate solutions, takes further responsibility and part in climate protection with a new version of "ViMove for Climate". The campaign invites everyone to exercise and convert movement into climate action, and Viessmann will support tree planting and reforestation projects in partnership with CHOOOSE.

The project began last summer when Viessmann encouraged employees and partners to run or bike for the climate. Over 5,000 people participated in #ViMove for Climate, planting a total of 150,000 trees in partnership with CHOOOSE. It was an impressive accomplishment, and one that encourages us–and hopefully you–to do it again.

From cross country skiing to yoga

After successful campaigns with partners and employees collecting more than 296,751 kilometres last year, Viessmann joins forces with CHOOOSE again and invites everyone to participate “ViMove for Climate”. To include as many of your favourite activities, you can now choose from 20 sports. You can find out how many kilometres you have to hike or how many minutes you have to ride your indoor bicycle for a tree in this overview:

Viessmann stands for sustainable and environmentally-friendly climate solutions. With the #ViMove for Climate reforestation project they offer another contribution—trees are our partner in climate conservation, after all. Over the course of its life, a tree absorbs large quantities of climate-damaging CO2 and converts it into oxygen.

The more you exercise, the more trees Viessmann donate. Track your activity and share your data with us using the ViMove app. You can also track your own achievements: How many trees we planted for your exercise, and how much CO2 you have offset.

Join now!

To reward your athletic accomplishments, Viessmann will directly support two carefully selected tree planting and forestation projects in Uganda and Kenya. Both are parts of the International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST). Nearly 300 small groups with 2,000 members already participate. Nearly 1,000 project sites cover a total of 700 hectares.

The trees are planted by hand with simple tools. Local farmers are trained in sustainable nursery management beforehand.
The trees prevent erosion, enrich the soil with nutrients and provide locals with edible fruits. Farmers receive timber as well.

Donate your lactic acid to a good cause!
